The Bel Air home of actress and midcentury architecture fan Jennifer Aniston and husband Justin Theroux began its life as a 1965 A. Quincy Jones house. But when Aniston bought the property in 2011, it had just been renovated by the architect Frederick Fisher, and Aniston found that the makeover didn’t mesh with her tastes, Architectural Digest notes in a tour of the celebrity couple’s residence that was published online today.
“Aesthetically, it was the furthest thing from what I wanted,” she tells AD. “But I immediately had the sense that it could work. It’s hard to describe, but I felt a connection.”
The actress worked with interior designer Stephen Shadley, and with Theroux, to reinvent the space. Shadley said Aniston is a fan of “wood, stone, and bronze, materials that have real substance and depth.”
In the house, midcentury furniture, antique Japanese screens, and concrete floors all coexist splendidly.
The property, which once included a vineyard, was also transformed in a network of “pocket gardens” and terraces. (The couple was married on the grounds in 2015.) See more photos of the interiors and the grounds over at Architectural Digest.
